le grand courtâge

tawnya falkner, founder

Le Grand Courtâge owner Tawnya Falkner grew up in a 3-street town, and that upbringing awoke a desire to see the world. The more she traveled, the more she realized that food and wine are about human connection and bringing people together to share life’s simple pleasures. Fueled by a passion and a belief, Tawnya gave up her career, took the leap and moved to France. Her vision to create an affordable everyday luxury resulted in Le Grand Courtâge and Très Chic, award-winning French wines with appealing, modern character and an elegant appearance.

Le Grand Courtage sparkling wines are produced in Burgundy, with grapes sourced from top vineyard regions, and Très Chic Rosé is a blend of Grenache and Cinsault from Languedoc. Crisp, light and refreshing, the wines are perfect partners to craft cocktails. Owned and operated entirely by women, Le Grand Courtâge approaches wine in the same way they approach life—open up and enjoy!
